Dear Emily Post...How do I......

.....explain this to a parent?

I help run a summer junior golf league on Mon, Tues & Weds afternoons. There are 86 kids in the program ranging in age from 8 to 16.....I love doing it. It is a passion of mine to get kids interested in & enjoying golf.

 So far this summer I have dealt with a gushing bloody nose, a kid being hit in the neck with a wayward shot, a kid throwing up, another almost passing out but yesterday really took the cake or the "jewels" on y6u will get my drift! 

One of the boys got hit by a golf ball in that part of his know....between his knees & his belly button........get it??

Now I not only have to interrogate several 12-13 year boys as to what happened but I have to tell his parents!!!!

Even Emily Post would have a hard time with that! 


  1. You are British you are meant to call them the crown jewels, oh but that wouldn''t help cos the Mum wasn't. Hmmm, bet it was awkward at best.

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
